With the wealth of information on this thread I'm almost more torn on what to get anymore. Would greatly appreciate some more sound advice. This is where I'm at so far, .338 or larger, the Lapua, .338/378, perhaps 338win mag? Other suggestions? I do reload, whats the most cost efficient round to reload and easiest to find bullets/brass so on for? Lighter is better, but not at the expense of accuracy. I only walk hunt, and though I can I would rather avoid a 20 pound meathammer. Recommendations on gun maker? Leaning towards the Weathererby Mark V's at the moment due to weight and attractive price. No issue going custom though and spending the money. Custom builders? One other thing is I would like to load the round down as well, for whitetail or anything else I fancy. Disclaimer to avoid getting off topic! I am an experienced shooter, and realize what it takes to shoot into the 1000 yard mark and the moral decisions that come with it when hunting at those ranges. Thank you for any help guys.
